Cyber Attack On Twitter Prevents EstateSalesNews.com Tweet

A cyber attack on Twitter prevented EstateSalesNews.com from tweeting it’s Friday article. We were able to tweet the article late Friday afternoon.

Twitter wasn’t the only website attacked. It also involved Netflix and other major websites.

It is important to call this to our audience attention. Cyber attacks can occur on any website. This is disconcerting about social media sites because thousand of estate liquidators use them.

This is an important concern for any estate sale company using social media.

As perspective sellers or buyers be sure if you receive emails on a regular basis that you check the estate sale company website in case an email does not arrive on schedule in your mail box so you won’t miss any news or upcoming estate sale info.

Happy 4th Of July From EstateSalesNews.com

Happy 4th of July from Estate Sales News. From our home to yours celebrating our freedom and independence. God Bless The USA.

Learn About Estate Sales – Estate Sales News – Printable List

The term estate sales covers a broad description for liquidating personal property today.

Estate liquidations are needed when a family or friend is deceased or downsizing. Baby boomers currently are the largest group (millions) that are now utilizing estate sale companies to help them accomplish this. This has caused a huge growth in the number of estate sale companies across the country.

Helpful tips to understand the estate sale process.

Decide what your goal is. If downsizing what do you want to keep and what is to be sold. Be sure you have this decision before inviting estate sale companies to come to interview and view what they would sell.

Find estate sale companies. Organizations, associations, and estate sale listing websites offer estate sale company names and their current sales. A website that advertises estate sales and estate sale companies is not in the liquidation business and does not have liquidation experience. They are a website source of advertising estate sale companies and estate sales to grow their advertising commerce.

Columbus Day And Estate Sales Share New Worlds Of Discovery

columbus-day

Today we celebrate Columbus discovering the new world and EstateSalesNews.com helps consumers discover the every changing new world of estate sales.

The way we use to conduct estate sales has changed dramatically from a hand shake and the wives of estate attorneys and CPA’s that used the local newspaper to advertise their estate sales (and these were the estates of the deceased) to young women and men entrepreneurs that use the internet and social media (some still also use newspapers) to conduct estate sales and estate liquidation businesses.

Instead of hundreds of estate sale companies we now have over 15,000 companies nation wide. EstateSalesNews.com helps estate liquidators navigate the changes such growth has brought.

We feature articles and information about state and federal laws pertaining to the sale of ivory, liability insurance, websites where they can advertise their companies and sales with little or no cost (besides using the bigger advertising listing websites that charge), keeping high ethics and standards, and even about the benefits of blogging and tweeting about their sales and companies. Getting your message out to as many consumers as possible today is paramount for success for estate sale companies and their clients. The bottom line – financial results for both parties.

Estate Sales News 2014 Year In Review – What We Have Learned & Shared

Slide1With Christmas eve less than a week away Estate Sales News wants to look back at what was under the tree this year for us and our estate sale going audience. This truly is a labor of love and we have enjoyed all the opportunities it has presented.

In February 2014 Estate Sales News flew to Memphis, TN to report on the 2014 Estate Sales Conference sponsored by EstateSales.Net and we were a guest speaker at the conference discussing the basics of the estate sale contract. Since late February we have presented many articles on this most important topic and answered numerous requests from sellers and estate liquidators for more information, keeping in mind we are not an attorney and we do not give legal advice.

We have been to California on several occasions to report on a variety of estate sales including one with the crown of a granddaughter of Queen Victoria, a massive sale of multiple collections from a National Geographic photographer and Indian Agent from the 1920’s to name a few.

We have also covered two estate sales (one including an auction) in Michigan. A fantastic collection of Mid-Century Modern furnishings, Jensen sterling, art glass, and more in Midland and another sale that included a large taxidermy auction in Portland, MI.

We had the delightful pleasure of visiting with Judy Martin, nationally known appraiser and estate liquidator at a fabulous sale in a Chicago suburb who provided great information about the estate sale industry and what’s selling as well as her sale for a famous Chicago artist.

Along with our travels, we have interviewed several estate sale companies across the country with unique sales, spoken to the owners of several national estate sale listing websites about the changes they are making to their websites to meet the increasing needs of a rapidly growing liquidation industry and the evolution of the estate sale business.

One of our larger projects this year was writing about How To Choose An Estate Sale Company. We covered in depth what to look for as well as providing a printable list to assist you in the process of finding and hiring an estate sale company.

Estate Sales News has featured articles on the sale of ivory, sales tax, inheritance tax, as well as featured guest articles from Julie Hall, nationally known owner, director of the American Society of Estate Liquidators (ASEL), Lofty.com (a new way of liquidating items that may not be a perfect fit in an estate sale) and of course we have produced many videos from estate sales and liquidation specialists and appraisers.

We have also been been included as a resource by EstateSales.Net for the 7,000 companies listed with them and shared our information with ASEL and other online resources.

Along with good news we have reported on some estate liquidation companies that were not typical of this great industry.

Majolica, gesso, and ormolu were some of the educational topics we wrote about.

We have featured a ThrowBack Thursday feature for most of the year.

Our thanks to EstateSale.company for sharing interesting articles from their collectors corner.

It’s been quite a year at EstateSalesNews.com and we thank everyone mentioned above along with all those who have assisted us in providing a free service to sellers looking to hire estate sale companies, buyers, and estate liquidators.

As the Editor and writer for EstateSalesNews.com it is with great pride to share this overview of some of what we have provided to our audience.

We will be taking some time now to spend with our family for this Christmas season. Please feel free to look into our nearly two years of archival information.

From our house to yours EstateSalesNews.com wishes you a Christmas of joy and happiness the blessings of family and friends.
